160-Point Inspection
At Inver Grove Toyota, only the best of the best Toyota used cars are chosen to be Toyota Certified Used Vehicles . When we choose a Toyota used car for certification, we have to do a little investigative work. Not only do we put each

Toyota used car through an exhaustive 160-Point Quality Assurance Inspection, but we also run a CARFAX Vehicle History Report to ensure it's worthy of the Toyota Certification process. Then, each car is reconditioned to Toyota's exacting

standards by factory-trained Toyota Technicians. We want the cars to look and feel as new as possible and we know you do too. We believe this helps maintain the value, as well as creates pride in ownership of Toyota Certified Used Vehicles.
